Young Jeezy Gives His Insight About Twitter Beef
Twitter Beef is becoming more and more of a problem now a days. Death threats along with actual deaths have grown due to people beefing on the social network and letting words escalade into actions.
Young Jeezy recently dealt with the consequences of Twitter beef when his close friend, 25-year-old Kevin James Scott, was killed in Atlanta last month over what may have been a beef with someone from the social networking site.
“I just lost a homeboy over Twitter beef so I don’t think it’s no joke, not at all. R.I.P. to Kev. He was a good kid…I don’t really wanna speak on it because I’m quite sure it’s still open, but I lost my homeboy and I had to be in the hospital,” Young Jeezy explained.
“I left the club. I got a call, left the club, came to the hospital and I had to sit there with his mother. To ya’ll this shit is [questions], but to me this shit is real. I sat in the room with his mother, his brother. The nurse walked in and she said ‘Ma’am I’m sorry, you lost your son to multiple gunshot wounds to the chest.’ And she walked out and left her to deal with that. And I had to sit there with her and comfort her.”
Young Jeezy went on to explain that words exchanged over a social networking site should never reach the point where someone’s killed as a result.
“I get it. Everybody got an ego. Everybody’s tough, but I feel like the shit is meant for networking,” said Young Jeezy.
“And my thing is these kids gotta know they can’t take this shit and make it a negative. They can’t be f**kin’ killing each other over words…It’s just crazy to see what these kids are doing today over some internet shit. It almost made me not want to be on Twitter no more and that’s probably why I haven’t really just been on it because I’m just like ‘Damn, what the f**k is going on?”
